New Tribest Green Star Juicer GS2000
Powerful masticating action of TWIN GEAR cuts and juices almost all vegetables including carrots, celery, leafy vegetables and wheat grass. The new TWIN GEAR system incorporates magnetic and bio-ceramic technologies which enables juices made in the Green Star to be stored longer, without losing health building benefits. The patented Pocket Recess of the TWIN GEAR easily guides tough, fibrous vegetables and herbs into the juicing area between the two gears. There are three cutting points on the TWIN GEAR, set to cut stringy fibers into small pieces, preventing a machine jam, which often occurs with ordinary dual gear juicers.
The Green Star juice extractor, with its uniquely engineered design has been assembled using the highest quality materials and workmanship for your maximum health and juicing pleasure

good at some things, not at othersJan 05, 2007
By Forrest Wilson
This was my first juicer, so I have no basis for comparison except what the manufacturer claims. You cannot juice wheatgrass with this, that is a blatant lie. you will get so much more foam than juice you will wish that you had driven to a juice bar and paid for them to do it, plus now you have to clean it again.
It juices things like carrots, jicama, green leaves and celery very well. The tougher and harder the veggie, the better this thing is. It absolutely cannot juice things like citrus, tomatoes, and even most apples will cause it to clog up quickly. It is so so at juicing cucumber. It is recommended that if you need to juice apples or cukes, switch off with a piece of carrot to push it all through.
I tried making almond butter several times, and it comes out looking like bread crumbs. I ran it through a bunch of times, and eventually it resembled almond "dough", cetrainly nothing creamy that could be called "almond butter" by any definition.
Cleaning it seems like a chore. I believe there are six pieces you can simply rinse off, and then there is the screen which you must scrub with the included brush. This is a total pain, and if you need to replace the brush or any other parts, they are very pricey. Oh and this machine weighs like 30 pounds!
My intent is not to bring anyone down with a lot of negativity, it's just that this was my experience and the reviews I have read didn't really paint the whole picture.

Powerhouse machineJan 13, 2006
By D. Dorcas
I love this machine. I use in quite often to make a variety of juice drinks. Yes it is a bit of a chore to clean, but if you do it right away and get into a rountine in only takes about 10 minutes to get it done. I love that it doesn't heat the juice so that the enzymes are still alive. I also got a pump n seal so that I can put the juice in mason jars and vacuum pack them so it last longer. I juice a big batch of "green lemonade" (see Natalia Rose THe Raw Food Detox Diet) about twice a week and make other drinks when desired. I am looking forward to making nut butters as well. I have also used the pulp in some other recipes and the remainder goes in my compost pile (boy does it break down fast as pulp!) Enjoy!

Reliable heavy duty machine for the serious juicerJun 06, 2006
By The Lifelong Learner
I've been using this juicer for 10 months, about 4 times a week. I love it. It's quiet. You can carry on a normal conversation while the machine is running. Juices slowly at a cool temperature. Makes minimal foam. Squeezes the pulp dry. You don't waste so much as with the non-gear driven kind. You don't need another machine to do different stuff. E.g., it handles fresh ginger as easily as carrots. Yes, it has several parts to disassemble to clean, but it's very easy to do - 10-15 min - and re-assembly is idiot-proof. I'm very happy with the Green Star.

Worst juicer ever, do not waste your moneyJan 24, 2009
I had a Champion juicer for 10 years and when it finally broke, I thought I'd "upgrade" to the Green Star. In short, this is the worst design for a juicer possible. Perhaps if you have an extra hour to make juice everyday, this juicer is fine, but the Green Star takes at least 3 times as long to clean as the Champion. The filter screen is an absolutely terrible design. Instead of a one piece screen, the Green Star has a screen with 16 corners which are extremely difficult to clean. As a result, I never use this juicer while I used to use the Champion all the time.

great machine - hard to cleanOct 26, 2005
By M. K. Foley
This is a superbly well-made machine. However, it is difficult to assemble and a pain in the butt to clean. Takes 20 minutes to clean after using. I really wish I had gotten the Vita-mix instead.
